The cross disciplinary minor in environmental information systems is designed for undergraduates interested in using computer and information management technology to solve environmental problems and improve environmental stewardship. Some examples of environmental information systems are database systems to track and report hazardous materials in factories, decision support systems to facilitate risk analysis and management, GIS-based natural resource inventory systems, and automated business management systems to support and document environmental compliance.

The requirement for a minor in environmental information systems is 25 credit hours. Core courses are intended to ensure knowledge of the foundation disciplines. Electives should be chosen in consideration of the student's particular interests within the general field of environmental information systems; the coordinator may approve other elective courses. Students are advised to check prerequisites of listed courses.
